Membership Details:

While Wharton may not have taught you networking skills, they're essential to any business career. The Wharton Club of NJ is committed to providing members with both the networking forum and the networking coaching, so that all members get the most out of one of the greatest business networks in the world - Wharton alumni!

The new "WCNJ Mercer County Leads Council " will meet monthly in Princeton at a breakfast meeting (8-9:30a) on the second Tuesday or Friday (member decision) of each month in downtown Princeton (location will be disclosed to the members at time of registration).

The WCNJ Mercer County Leads Council is a networking group open only to members* of the Wharton Club of New Jersey who live and/or work in NJ. As described below, our non-competitive councils allow only one member representing each industry area within each networking group.

Membership will be on a first come, first served basis.
